The Story

Hello! We're Claire and Hannah and in September 2015 we're walking from Cardiff to London to raise money for The Marc Bolan School of Music in Makeni, Sierra Leone. We'll be covering 211 miles over ten days and it'll be really hard and painful so please support us!

The MBSoM is being set up in Marc's memory by his partner, Gloria Jones, with the aim of providing Makeni with a safe, inspiring and supportive environment in which children with very little can learn new skills that will allow them to build brighter futures. Many of the children are orphans or have been rescued from diamond mines, and they are now struggling through the Ebola crisis. We are currently working with the Red Cross to provide medical support, but once the outbreak is under control the children will need a source of hope and happiness more than ever. Music brings joy and entertainment, but also comfort, education, and opportunities for the future, and it draws people together into a stronger community. We heard recently from some of the children in Makeni and they are so excited for their school - please help us build it for them!

For lots more information on the school and our walk, please have a look at our website. You can also join our facebook group and follow us on twitter!

Thank you!

Claire and Hannah xx
